  1. I just modded an N64 to have a ultra bright blue power light and got the LED from Radioshack because I’m tired of Mouser/Digikey’s shipping fees and order quantities that make you order at least 25 of something to make it worth it. One of the commenters on that link said free-to-store shipping, and thats the way to go. Wal-Mart and Best Buy offer it.

    If they can lower the price enough, not enough of course to undercut the big guys, but enough so it doesn’t kill me to buy two LED’s or some perf board, then I’ll shop with them way more often.

    They need better tools too, like REAL irons and good solder, like Hakko FX-888 and thin 26swg Multicore brand solder (in 60/40 and other types). They sell DMM’s that could be better, like the Extech EX330, whatever they have there I wouldn’t trust.

    I don’t need smarter sales staff as they’re kids who joke around and sell cellphones to old/clueless people. I know what I want and can find it just fine TYVM. If they stock parts in small quantities so I can experiment it’s a quick and relatively painless way to experiment.
